THE UNDERWORLD

With the Art Metro we will reach Materdei Station, one of the most interesting modern art exposition in the world, from there we will walk through a particular borough of  Naples La Sanità, where we will walking deeper in the history of this great town. The Fontanelle cemetery  in Naples is a charnel house, an ossuary, located in a cave in the tuff hillside in the Materdei section of the city. It is associated with a chapter in the folklore of the city. Many Neapolitans, however, insisted on being interred in their local churches. To make space in the churches for the newly interred, undertakers started removing earlier remains outside the city to the cave, the future Fontanelle cemetery.
resurrected from the ashes as Fenic in the  rowdy  neighborhood materdei  strolling  through the narrow streets, sounds and colors of this city.

We continue by Art Metro by visiting Dante Square, the librarian street,  a characteristic part of the historical centre till reaching TOLEDO station
 
 
 

NEA-POLIS

Nea-polis = New town

In no other place in the world the modernity is so important as the past. The most visitors of Naples come to enjoy our great history without knowing that also today Naples is a hotbed of new ideas, art, communication and culture.
Through this tour you will see the futuristic version of the city that does not screech with the ancient background , it emphasizes its beauty.

We will use the ArtMetrò of Naples for reaching the following museum of international interest, PAN, Madre and the Museum of the 900 located in the fascinating Castel Sant’Elmo.
